I tried some vegan cooking when my niece was visiting and this hot sandwich went over well. Even the omnivores liked them so its a good option for mixed groups.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the re-fried beans and reserve until vegetables are ready.
  2. Split hoagie buns if necessary and toast under broiler if desired.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 450°F.
  4. Heat olive oil on medium heat in heavy skillet.
  5. Saute onions until half-cooked.
  6. Add green peppers, jalapenos, and zucchini and continue sauteing until the vegetables are half-cooked. Adjust heat if necessary -- you want a gentle browning without sogginess.

  8. Spread re fried beans on hoagie buns. Top with vegetable mix. Top that with cheese (or vegan cheese substitute).
  9. Put in 450 oven or under broiler briefly to melt cheese.
  10. Add olives, lettuce, spinach, and tomato then cut into 6-inch serving pieces.
